Great site. The one thing I could add is, while EVERYONE tells you to back up the registry before editing it, this is almost as dangerous as editing the registry in the first place. In order to allow the least chance that the registry will become corrupted during a save, changing the name of the files is a safer method, albeit more trouble to go through.

When a mail is sent from MS Outlook on one machine to Outlook Express on another machine (both machines with XP, all updates installed), then many a times the attachments doesn't show on Outlook Express. The mail shows the size of the attachment, but there in no 'clip' sign on which to click and access the attachment. This happens intermittently, not always. Why?
When I archived my emails I was using a different email address than I have now.
Now I need one of the archived files, and I cannot get it because I do not have "access " to those files.
Any idea on how I may open the archive?
Please tell me how i could send music ( midi or .wav0 with my PowerPoint presentations. I can setup music on my system whilst viewing the presentation but when I send it to a friend the music is missing.
Tools/Options/Security/uncheck has been done in my OE6 (operating Windows XP). Clicking Reply, then dbl clicking attachment line seems to work. What happened to paperclip on the body of the incoming mail and why the problem these past few months? Today, I tried to send an attachment. Soon as I clicked Send, the Attach: line disappeared. However, the recipient said he received it. Thank you for this site: until tonight, I thought the problem was all mine alone cuz even my tech support at Award Winning was at a lose.
I still need help, I was trying to save an email attachment to a floppy disk when it just stopped, and then I got this message, that Outlook Express removed all attachments that could be potentially harmful, When I changed the security tab, Tthe message Im getting now is that outlook failed to execute. So today, I cannot get an email attachments, please help. KS
Whenever i want to open an attachment, this meesage comes up :PAINT CANNOT READ THIS FILE. THIS IS NOT A VALID BITMAP FILE OR ITS FORMAT IS NOT CURRENTLY SUPPORTED;.
What kind of a file is it? Can you right-click, do a "save as", and then open the file from the saved location?
